Benitez hints at Mourinho return

Rafael Benitez has suggested that he expects Jose Mourinho to be named his successor as Chelsea manager.

Interim boss Benitez again confirmed he will depart Stamford Bridge this summer at the end of his short-term contract. Real Madrid head coach Mourinho, who left after three years as Blues boss in September 2007, has been strongly linked with a return, with a date of July 1 mooted.

"The next year there will be another manager," said Benitez, who replaced Roberto Di Matteo in November. "I think everybody knows who will be here."
